I miss you so much.
I wish you could have met my son Jeff. He is so much like you. I am so sorry that you died. It is so tragic for me. I wasn't there when you died. I will always love you and you will always be in my heart and memories for the rest of my life. Your memory will live in my son's heart as well. He grew up knowing you, even though you died before he was adopted. He looks and acts like you ... one of these days he will have kids ... they will also know of you ... I can't let go ... this will always be the worst day of my life ... when you died and you were buried on my birthday ...
I miss you so much ...
